The 59-year-old man who was missing in the Coromandel Ranges has been found safe and well by Search and Rescue teams.

The Pukekohe man was spotted from an Air Force helicopter by a LandSAR spotter yesterday afternoon.

He'd been missing since Monday night.

Sergeant Phil Bell says the man was wearing a fluro vest and shone a torch he was carrying, which helped rescuers see him for the air.

He says they're really pleased to have been able to return this man to his family.
